Episcleritis is a self-limited inflammation that does not cause lasting damage. Most patients with episcleritis may not require any treatment. Either Prednisolone Acetate 1.0% or Fluorometholone .1% 1 drop 3x/day can be prescribed. Cold compresses can also help relieve the discomfort.
When you have ocular allergies, symptoms can include: itching, tearing, discharge, burning, photophobia, red eye, and decreased vision. Often, contact lens wear can worsen the condition, so a change in contact lens material or to daily disposables, is recommended. Cold compresses, artificial tears, and steroid eye drops are also recommended.
